March 4, 2007


Jess Lightner, a tubist with the U.S. Air Force Ceremonial Brass and a native of Garden City, will perform March 12 at Kansas University.

His career as a tubist has taken him all over the country, performing on NBC's "Today" show, at the Cooperstown Chamber Music Festival and at the University of Oregon.
